Hot Air poll results – Palin has wide lead over other GOP possible candidates

I think Jim did something similar here at RVO within the last week, but he missed a couple of possible candidates when he first published the poll. The Hot Air poll is somewhat relevant, since we’re talking a primary and you’ve got to figure Hot Air readers would be included in the group actually voting in a primary.

Sarah Palin doesn’t just win, she’s been consistently leading the Hot Air poll for months.

Our poll really was not very good since major players were left off and our poll sample was much smaller. Maybe I’ll start our own tracking poll for RVO … Maybe publish results weekly or something … Of course it will not be scientific, but maybe I’ll require registration or something to improve the results a bit.

So, should we consider Palin a serious contender? Is she electable? Does she want to run? Is the opposition screwing up with the poll promoting their vision of an easy Democrat win?

From Hot Air…

Sarah Palin once again leads the Primary race among Hot Air readers. She is again followed by Herman Cain in second. Tim Pawlenty and Mitch Daniels take third and fourth place respectively, while Mitt Romney leads a very tight pack of Rand Paul and Michele Bachmann, in fifth.

    As I said in a previous post, she should be there to be the lightening rod/pinata for the rabid lefties.


    And if all else fails, she is more qualified than Øbama was when he was elected, but has the right attitude (pun intended).

    Well, you just wrecked my day.  She is not electable.  Why not just save the expense of an election and just name Obama the president again.

      Well, for what it is worth, I thought Øbama was unelectable too….


      Anything is possible.

        Too true, too true. One of my favorite Trump quotes, "President Obama is the worst president ever".  But I wish Fox would give less coverage to Trump! I will support any Republican that wins the Primary.

    I listened to her much ballyhooed speech & found her well spoken but her voice had an irritating quality & unpleasant accent to it. She has way too many other detriments to be electable…maybe VP.

      So your issue – at least the two you point out – has to do with her voice? Her?dialect? I’ve heard such statements before, and it’s the reason I just posted this piece. Put some thought to it when it comes to policy and tell us why Palin is unelectable over at this thread.

    This poll has to be a new record….. 16 names and NO RON PAUL!! The one guy in Washington asking tough questions, and demanding the truth, and the guy can’t get a sniff from any media outlet (outside of INFOWARS)

      Sen. Rand Paul is included. That said, the oldest president to be elected – Reagan – was 69. Rep. Ron Paul would be 77 years old in 2012. I propose the reason little discussion around Rep. Paul may be specific to his age. My opinion is not age discrimination, rather the reality of age. I’d also be quite concerned about someone like Gov. Chris Christie running for president due to his obesity… this is a stressful position and job to undertake.

      Heck, I’m not sure I could even survive the campaign let alone four years in office.

    Rand Paul and Michelle Bauchman just got to Washington. Wasn’t one of the big digs at Obama in 08, that he wasn’t ever in one position long enough to prove himself? I believe the 4th Estate has moved to the 5th column and they could never push for a man as honest as Ron Paul.

    @brianh – good question … not sure why he was not included. They have definitely updated the list since they started this (unscientific) poll.
